After a close encounter of the hotspot kind, Nadine’s paws are full figuring out how to feed her thirsty vampire of a brother, trying to convince the CDC she actually can be a shapeshifter infected with the lycanthropy virus, and dodging the pack of crazy women out for her blood—or her brother’s body.
She’s not sure if they want her or her brother, but she doesn’t want to find out.Nadine knows one thing for certain: her backwater town is too small for everybody coming to pay her family of two a visit. Maybe she doesn’t have a male platypus’s venomous spurs, but she’s ready to put up a fight to protect her brother, and not even the sexy plaid-clad stranger strutting his stuff is going to lure her away from home.
Assuming she’ll be given a choice in the matter is only the first of her mistakes.
Warning: this novel contains the mythical plaidypus and other deadly puns, romance, bodies, a minimum of two Canadians, and a mandatory magical adventure to Australia.
Proceed with caution.
Plaidypus can be read as a standalone.
You can acquire Plaidypus at the following retailers: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Apple Books | Kobo
The audiobook edition has been booked with the producer, but there is currently no ETA. The Print edition will be coming within the next 6-8 weeks, roughly. (Kickstarter contributors will begin receiving their books before the print edition reaches widespread distribution; there are several weeks of delay at the distribution point, although I can order author copies prior to finalized distribution.)
Phew. After a delay, life, the universe, and everything… Plaidypus is finally here! I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have.
And if you haven’t given a Mag Rom Com a try yet… here is a teeny tiny teaser! (And I won’t lie, this is one of my favorite opening lines I’ve written. Not even the ghost of a lie on this one.)
The zombie moose was back, shuffling around my front yard in search of something to eat. Since the night I’d hit her with my truck, resulting in more chaos, mayhem, and tragedy than I needed in my life, she insisted on following me around. I suspected she wanted to eat my brother, who’d emerged from the crash with a severe case of vampirism. Unlike my brother or the moose, I’d come out of the accident still kicking and breathing.
One of your best yet! You had me at “The zombie moose was back” and I didn’t stop until I was finished with the book. Your books are always a great read whichever series it happens to be. Many Kudos!

Loved it!! Now I just have to keep re-reading the rest of your books, until the next opus appears.
Fantastic! I’m not finished yet but I’m so pleased to be reading my favourite series and it has come to my homeland! Auzzie Auzzie Auzzie!! Thanks for being pretty accurate in your depiction! It’s painful when some authors say outlandish things about Australian things or guess from an outside POV. Great job! Maybe your lovely Canadians would be more comfortable in Tasmania where it’s not quite so hot for so long in summer. Tazzie is a good place to find flannel shirts in winter too! Also, we have some devils of our own down here! Most Canadian travellers I have met don’t have trouble with our accents down here either. Apparently our accent is more English than the mainland. But we still speak ochre/stryne in the bush here too. Thanks for another 6 and out of the ground/park! Keep up the good work and the taking of rest! 😁 I’m enjoying the pretty pictures! I hope you’re enjoying yourself!
Loved it. And I loved getting earlier, via Patreon. But I must, however sadly, say that I fear “Plaidypus has released” just doesn’t have quite the same ‘oomph’ as “Release the Kraken!” snicker
Anyone knowing geese, though, will understand.
Plaidypus is so much fun!!! You did an amazing job despite all the challenges life threw your way over the past year.
Looking forward to the print edition when it’s released as well. Thanks for always providing multiple options to your readers; it’s appreciated.
Happy sigh. I just finished cover to cover and thoroughly enjoyed, giggles and all. My husband is now reading it, and my only admonishment is that he gets some sleep tonight. My viewpoint on Him is very similar to what was described, except in imagery. I tend to think of each religion as a plane tangent to a sphere. There are infinite planes and we cannot know the whole of Him, only a portion. Also, I’ve always loved the question about whether He could create a boulder so big that He cannot lift it, the answer being yes, He can. That’s usually followed up by saying that if He must not be all know, all powerful, if He can’t lift the boulder. At which point, I say, yes, He can. That’s the mystery. Now, I get that this is fiction, and not necessarily your viewpoint, and so forth. But I like this viewpoint because it tends towards inclusion, rather than exclusion.
Here’s hoping we all survive the insanity that is our government, or at least half of it, and that you continue to enjoy writing. He knows, we enjoy reading. 🤓

Yeah, nothing religious I put into my books at all adheres to my personal beliefs. Hell, half the stuff my characters do don’t adhere to my personal beliefs. That is because I’m writing fictional characters.
